Scottsdale Nightlife: 5 Different Experiences


Dance All Night

Ready to hit the dance floor? Scottsdale has plenty of options. On the 14th floor of Talking Stick Resort sits Degree 270, a premier dance club with stunning views of Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert. Here, live entertainment is the perfect companion to regular drink specials and a sophisticated lounge atmosphere.

Casual and Cool

At The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, Waltz & Weiser Whiskey Bar & Cantina specializes in fine tequilas and whiskeys, and offers an upscale bar and Mexican-inspired menu in addition to billiards and shuffleboard.

The Wild, Wild West

The West’s Most Western Town is chock full of boot scootin’ fun. What was once Scottsdale’s first bank is now a favorite Western watering hole. Rusty Spur Saloon is a historic tavern where everyone from John Wayne to Vince Vaughn has knocked back some suds.

Live Music

Scottsdale shines the spotlight on live entertainment. Musical expressions from around the world are on tap at Center Stage Bar at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch. From Southern harmony to edgy folk and acoustic soul, listen to it all in a whimsical setting of cascading fountains and glowing fireplaces.There’s something very “Frank Sinatra” about the nightlife experience at Mastro’s City Hall Steakhouse. Take your pick from the long list of specialty martinis and settle in for an evening of masterful piano sounds. For a slightly edgier scene, check out Scottsdale Waterfront’s Culinary Dropout. The restaurant and bar, which reserves two-thirds of its menu for beer, wine and cocktails like the bacon-infused Bloody Mary, puts on shows from top local bands every Friday and Saturday night.

Looking to Lounge

Here’s where to sit and sip for a cocktail-driven experience. Stylish Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain’s jade bar and edge lounge are the perfect razor-sharp duo where breathtaking views and exotic drinks are the main course. Here, cocktails are art in motion with handcrafted concoctions like the Eastern Raspberry Sidecar – a muddle of Germaine Robin brandy, Nigori sake and fresh lemon juice. Another hotel bar, ZuZu at Hotel Valley Ho, is a sweeping glass-lined space where the drink menu matches its fun and retro vibe. Also in downtown, R&D at citizen public house is a speakeasy-of-sorts where locals and visitors go for proper and sophisticated cocktailing. And rounding out the list is Salt Lounge at Scottsdale Quarter, popular for its local celebrity mixologists, funky furniture and suave setting.
